Welcome to the Shapeshift Website

Fundamentally Dance and Movement is fun and life affirming. Here you will find information about connected embodiment practices that are enjoyable and effective.

Shapeshift Dance invites you to get to know, enjoy and be at home with your own nature. Embracing the natural wisdom of our body is reparative to the self and to our knowing of our place in the family of all things. 

You are guided towards strengthening your innate ability to be mindful of your physicality, with a view to heartful expression and self care.

When we shift our attention to our resources: body, breath, movement, connection to earth, self, others and the mystery, our relationship to the challenges we face and the trauma we may carry also shifts, in a way that can reduce feelings of overwhelm and loneliness. 

This is a practice that nourishes and integrates body, heart, mind and dancing spirit. Shapeshift Dance is an invitation to move with the life that is moving through you with courage, humour, gentleness and trust.
